                                      SPY REPORT

     Much has changed in LIN TIRIAN since last I was here.  Never fear, Olaf Modeen 
adapts to many situations, as do all successful fighters.  What's with CON MAN?  It 
actually beat SAND DANCERS' CHELBAGHEERA, and walked away with 17 more points from 
the fight.  Laughs were big at LIN TIRIAN while they watched CAPTURED ORC clobber 
HALGAR SNAGTOOTH.  He lost 4 points and got bruised from objects thrown from the 
stands.  SHANA TWO-KNIVES was reminded on the sands why CONJURER is Duelmaster.  
Advice to fighters with a 1 will--give up fighting!   
     No matter the time or place, men will always duel.  The most avoided team was 
DOMINATION.  The bums at MAGIC ARTISTS couldn't face the challenges from DOMINATION!  
No excuse for that!   
     Warriors of LIN TIRIAN unite.  You have only your games to lose!  How long have 
I been here?  I got people to see, places to go...   
     Who knows what the future holds for a warrior.  More fights, there's no doubt.  
LIN TIRIAN is a nice place to live, but I don't like to live in nice places.  
Remember--a good fighter needs both good skills and good luck.  Until next time,-- 
Olaf Modeen

This is my DM Column, and because it is a little short, it is posted in the lower
extremities of the newsletter.  Where it belongs .... -- Conjurer (who had no problem
using a concubine to gain a title)

I liked that Venomous Concubine, too! -- Necromancer (going to the Isle undefeated)

Shana -- Take THAT, you killer! -- Abjurer

Convicted Thief -- I can be a witch or anything else which ends in itch. -- Witch

Messalida -- Bah, Humbug! -- Con Man

Chief Illiniwek -- Come on out!  I want to beat your guys. -- Houdini, Magic Artists

Abjurer -- Hmm, Webster says:  Abjurer: one who abjures.  To abjure: to renounce
solemnly or to abstain.  I can't see that you're abjuring anything worth noticing. --
Shana Two-Knives

Con Man -- Actually, I was laughing at you. -- Messalida

Ambitious Guard?  Pah. -- Chelbagheera

The Fratsfa Slave is worthless. -- Red Coulter

The Captured Orc has no useful skills.  Off with his head. -- Halgar Snagtooth

Necromancer -- Nah, I don't muck around in that kind of weird stuff.  Let the Rirorni
do it.  Besides, it isn't happening HERE. -- Shana
